Sorry for the delay in getting the results posted, but it was a hectic work week, combined with hockey playoffs - so I'll get to the results.

We had 24 entries from across the peninsula and surrounding areas. Our 9-person judging panel split judging duites, and after 3 rounds the final results were:

1st Place: Andrew Klingbeil from Bear, Delaware (AHA member)
Beer: American-style Farmhouse Ale: a saison brewed with agave nectar and an
American hop-influence (?)

2nd Place: John Mays from Claymont, Delaware (AHA member)
Beer: 30-Minute Pale Ale: An American pale ale with orange and coriander

3rd Place: Kent Spriggs from Wilmington, Delaware (First State Brewers)
Beer: Carraway Brown Ale: An English brown rye ale

Congratulations to the winners, and a thanks to everyone who entered. We hope that everyone who was able to attend the reception had a great time. If you haven't received your score sheets back already, they will be going out very soon.
